About Jakob

“Intimacy does not have to depend on sexuality, gender or love” (Jonas Øren on “Jakob”). This quote sums up Tony Tran’s starting point of Jakob (2019)’s creative journey, a duet performance displaying an intimate encounter between two men in a room, looking at each other. Everything begins with ways of looking. A look holds in it the power to reveal and expose two bodies in motion. A look that speaks a thousand words.

“Through a movement dialogue between two male dancers, succinct and evocative, Norwegian-Vietnamese choreographer Tony Tran questions the interrelationships between individuals and those around them: how do we en-counter each other?” (excerpt from Doan Thanh Toan’s unreleased writing)

This dance piece is a continuation of Tony Tran’s ongoing choreographic research on masculine identities and its construction.
